Saturday Shots ~ It's That Time of Year ~ Packing Rogue Balls

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker United Realtors® ~ 512.346.1799

 In Austin we have a fun rogue tradition (one that ties to our slogan "Keep Austin Weird")..... we like to decorate trees and bushes along our roadsides during the holiday season. As people drive by they honk and yell "Merry Christmas" to families decorating the trees (there are a lot to choose from).

This year Handsome Hudson and Beautiful Beckett helped decorate 2 bushes in the entrance to the section of Canyon Creek we live in. Of course we always take them down after New Years! Our tub of rogue balls are packed and ready to be stored until next December!

Dorie- what a wonderful "weird" tradition!!!!  I do remember one tree on the road we take to the beach, and for the past few years, someone has decorated it with garland and balls!!!

Loved this Tradition, here in LA no one would drive by and say "Merry Christmas" they might get an earful that it is "politically incorrect" what a bunch of..... anyway I love it. Sadly just got back from a mini vacation and tomorrow is "take the outdoor lights and decorations down":))Endre

Morning Dorie.

Within two-three days after Christmas our tree is packed up all the decorations are put away and we have our living room back again.

I think that is a very cool thing to do and doesn't seem weird at all.  The Christmas spirit is still alive!

Hi Dorie: I had no idea what you meant by rogue balls. I thought to myself, hmm, I wonder if it's what I'm thinking. No, of course not. And it wasn't. I need to get my mind out of the gutter, LOL.

What stops passersby from stealing the balls?

Hi Dorie:

What a neat tradition to have in your area. We see a few trees decorated here and there but not on a regular basis. What fun for the grandkids each Christmas.

Hi Dorie,
I've never heard of Rogue ball decorating, but that sounds like a fun, weird, thing to do every year!

That's such a cute idea.  I'll have to see if I can get a tree at my office large enough to give that a try by next year.

What a neat trick.

We've got a neighbor who puts big christmas ornaments & bells on the twigs he thinks is a tree.   While I may think that's weird, it does surely brighten up the tree and his part of the city block.

Now it's all packed up, to wait for another year.
